    Saving the Harvest

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I am making zucchini and yellow squash pickles and canning them. The are being done separately with 2 different recipes. Looks like I will end up with 10 jars of them today!! This is in addition to the zucchini bread that I have been making weekly, and the zucchini that I have already grated and frozen, pre-measured, for making more zucchini bread when zucchini is no longer coming fresh from the garden!

    Life is good, and the eating will be too!!

    edit: I lied. I only ended up with 9 jars! Maybe I should not have been eating them as I was making them!

    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    Will the pickles be available for purchase?

    I've never thought about selling them. But I do give some of the jars as gifts.

    I will do that. It is straight from the Ball Blue Book of Canning, but I will post cleanly, so that it can be linked to the GTT Cookbook, with the one notation!

    Zucchini Pickles

    (This recipe is from the Ball Blue Book of Canning, Edition 31, (C) 1986)

    2 pounds fresh firm zucchini
    2 small onions
    1/4 salt (I use canning/pickling salt)
    2 cups sugar
    2 tsp Mustard Seed
    1 tsp celery salt
    1 tsp Turmeric
    3 cups vinegar

    Wash zucchini and cut into thin slices. Peel and cut onion into quarters, then slice very thin. Add to zucchini. Cover zucchini and onions with inch of water, and add salt. Let stand 2 hours. Drain thoroughly.

    Bring remaining ingredients to boiling. Pour over zucchini and onions. Let stand 2 hours. Bring all ingredients to boiling point and heat 5 minutes.

    Pack into hot jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Remove air bubbles. adjust caps. Process 15 minutes in boiling water bath.
    Yield: about 4 half pints


    (Farmgirl note: I do some of mine in pint jars, and some in half pint, just for my own convenience. When you remove the jars from the water bath, cover with a dish towel, so they do not chill too quickly. Leave the jars completely undisturbed at least overnight. Any jars that do not seal within 12-15 hours, place in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks, and then enjoy. I think these are best after 4-6 weeks (or longer), but they are good as soon as cooked. Any leftover that does not fit into or fill a jar, can be eaten on the spot, or placed in a container and refrigerated to enjoy with the next meal.)

    You might also want to check out our GTT Cookbook. It is the first item under the Off Topic, Cooking and Grilling forum. I have a recipe in there for zucchini bread that is to die for! I grate zucchini and premeasure and freeze in freezer bags. When ready to bake bread and zucchini is out of season, just thaw, and pour off the excess water, (No need to towel dry), and use in the recipe. A taste of summer, in the middle of winter!
